Arrhythmologist in Riga: consultations and examinations at GK Neiroklīnika

Heart beats like crazy?

Rapid heart rate fluctuations can be caused by a serious illness. If the cause is unclear, it is recommended to consult a doctor, preferably an arrhythmologist. Highly qualified arrhythmologist in Riga, Brīvības gatve 410 – GK Neiroklīnika.

It is not possible to live your life without ever feeling your heart beating faster, stumbling, or feeling weak. It is a normal reaction of the body to physical activity or emotional experience, possibly also to a glass of wine or a cup of strong coffee. However, one should listen to the heart – both literally and figuratively. The heart can indicate serious problems, including life-threatening ones. Where do you turn for help? See a specialist!

What does an arrhythmologist do?

An arrhythmologist is a cardiologist specialising in the treatment of arrhythmias. He treats people with acute or chronic heart rhythm problems. Using modern methods and examinations, the arrhythmologist makes a diagnosis and offers therapeutic procedures, including electrical pulse therapy and pacemaker implantation.

Usually people do not notice the heart beating. However, if the heart rate deviates from the norm, the changes are most often also subjectively felt. This is arrhythmia – a heart rhythm disorder. In this case only a specialist can make an accurate diagnosis, as well as provide appropriate treatment. Heart disease is a serious health risk, therefore one should not delay the visit to the doctor.

Arrhythmia is a disease, but heart problems can be a manifestation of another disease, so it is often not the arrhythmia itself that has to be treated, but the disease that causes it, including high blood pressure.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder and a person may not even feel it, however, some patients feel peculiar heart vibrations that are often not given enough attention. If, for example, atrial fibrillation occurs as a short-term reaction after an infection or a sleepless night, it may be a symptom of another serious illness.

Arrhythmias can also occur due to changes in the body’s self-regulatory system and can be accompanied by circulatory disorders that can be life-threatening. Such problems, however, cannot go unnoticed – they occur suddenly, as loss of consciousness along with the onset of heart problems.

Arrhythmia is dangerous because it:

  • affects the blood flow of the body;
  • disrupts heart rhythm;
  • increases the risk of stroke and thromboembolism;
  • causes the progression of heart failure.

The arrhythmologist prescribes examinations, most often electrocardiography, echocardiography, exercise test, cardiovascular probing, heart rate monitoring with implanted systems that register arrhythmias for several years, as well as various electrophysiological examinations.

The examinations will, of course, be followed by recommendations and, if necessary, appropriate treatment. It may be necessary to take medicine for some time, however, arrhythmias are increasingly being treated with non-medical methods, including catheterisation, which is an effective and at the same time minimally invasive method that provides the necessary help to avoid taking medication for the rest of the life.

A highly qualified arrhythmologist will provide consultations and perform examinations in Riga, Brīvības gatve 410.

Adapt to new times

If some years ago the doctor said that you should put up with your arrhythmia, it does not mean that the answer is the same today. As science evolves, modern methods often not only improve a person’s condition, but even treat the disease completely. Only a specialist can advise you on the real solution. Do not postpone the visit!

The visit to an arrhythmologist should not be postponed because in the case of heart disorders prevention is also crucial – control of blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and treatment of high blood pressure. Early detection of the disease may result in even minor lifestyle adjustments being sufficient, such as dietary changes or regular physical activity, including swimming, walking, and regular cycling, to improve the situation.

Some people live with arrhythmia untreated, some of them are not completely preventable, but a specialist consultation is desirable in any case because heart disorders are a health risk and can be controlled medically, as well as with the help of modern technologies. Our clinic employs knowledgeable specialists with extensive experience, who not only know the latest treatment methods but can also find a common language with each patient and develop the exact treatment programme that is most appropriate in each particular case.
